Book Title & Alexandra's Review

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

I’M BACK!

Here is the beginning of my list of books written by Brian Selznick.

4th Grade and Up

An orphan and a thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy train station. He desperately believes a broken automaton will make his dreams come true. But when his world collides with an eccentric girl and a bitter old man, Hugo’s undercover life, and his most precious secret, are put in jeopardy.

 

This book is not exactly a graphic novel and not exactly a regular novel. It is something entirely original and unique.

 

With the artwork taking up most of the book’s 533 pages, this book can easily be read in a couple of hours. It took me a few days because I had school, but it’s no excuse.

 

This is one of the few books/movies where I watched the movie first instead of reading the book first. I watched the movie when it came out back in 2011 and read the book in 2017.

Tune in next Saturday for another Brian Selznick book.
